FAQ’s

I have been diagnosed with LD and/or ADHD for a long time, should I be retested?

By providing the most current assessment of your performance and abilities, we will be able to best meet your needs. Also, because the provision of all reasonable accommodations and services is based upon assessment of the current impact of the disability on academic performance, it is in a student’s best interest to provide recent and appropriate documentation. In most cases, this means that a diagnostic evaluation has been completed within the past three years however no student should delay requesting accommodations out of concern for not having the appropriate paperwork. Make an appointment with Jean Martin, Disability Services Specialist (256-233-8143) and bring all the previous documentation you have and we will work with you on whether or not it is in your best interests to be retested.

I am already a student registered with Disability Services. Do I need to do anything to get accommodations again next semester?

Yes, students seeking accommodations must send the Disability Services Specialist their semester schedules each semester. This schedule indicates that the student wishes to receive accommodations again that semester and that Disability Services has the student’s permission to inform their professors of their accommodations. It is not done automatically. Semester schedules can be sent via , by fax (256-233-8143), or in person to Disability Services. Schedules should include the following information:

  • Student Name
  • Student Number
  • Semester
  • Course Name
  • CRN
  • Date/Time of Class
  • Delivery Mode: DL- Online, DL-Blended, Traditional (Lecture)
